Volume V, No. 2, Summer 2011 ($15)

In this issue we feature a rollicking tale of a 1911 flying ace and his derring-do. There is A. Robert Towbin's poignant short story, "A Business Trip to California," that is intriguingly evocative of William Trevor. There's a moving memoir by J. Patrick Redmond entitled "Margaret" that tells of his friendship with a most unlikely character, as well as a very brave short story by Mary Richie, "The Conductor," in which she explores the limits of traditional language and narrative form.

— Lou Ann Walker, Editor-in-Chief

Volume V, No. 1, Spring 2011 ($15)

As you page through this issue, you will encounter plenty of writers--and visual artists--stretching, bending, yoga-izing the boundaries. Take, for example, E.B. Sanders' ideas on procreation. Or Paton Miller's approach to figurative painting. Think about the extraordinary story Peter Hansen has to tell after a plate glass flew off a Manhattan balcony on a windy day and struck him in the head. Don't miss Magdalene Brandeis' tale of dealing with the medical establishment during her husband's liver transplant.

— Lou Ann Walker, Editor-in-Chief
